Day 2 in Sydney is basically "eat good food" day... Its a super slack day! As there is not much to talk about, I will squeeze the remaining of day 2 into this post...

After eating dim sum, we decided to explore Chinatown...  The first thing that we saw is this street performer... he can play a melody with recycled glass bottles filled with water... Imagine the amount of precision needed to fill the bottle so that the tune will be just right... damn pro right... he must be very free and very patient haha...


The next place we go to is called Paddy's market... it is similar to the Singapore Pasar Malam... just that its indoors...


Most of the stalls sell souvenirs and a lot of them sell the same things... so its advisable to compare prices between the stalls before making your purchase... 

Look at the koala and kangaroo bags... arent they cute?! haha im a kid at heart...


A random blur picture of the stalls...


We continued walking and we end up at the food street at Chinatown... This is the famous entrance to Sydney Chinatown...


And guess what we are here for... Yeap we are here for the famous emperor's puff!!! Its so famous the cake shop have to open a small window beside just to sell this...


Emperor's puff are made fresh and sold instantly.... Although there is a super long queue, the waiting time is not very long as the machine makes the puff pretty fast...


And the best thing of all its not expensive!!!


A photo of us while waiting for our turn...


This is how emperor's puff looks like... it is just like mini taiyaki filled with custard... heavenly if you eat it hot as the custard will be oozing out... definitely a must try!!!.... look at the amount 3 of us buy haha


We even bought swiss rolls from the cake shop... this is how much we miss cakes after staying in Australia long enough... where can you find such cheap cakes in Australia?! yum yum!!!


After chinatown, we went to DFO to do some shopping... and we have no photos!!! too busy shopping...

In the evening we took the train to meet another friend for dinner... Look at how cool the train is... its double decker!!! You get to choose if you want to look up or look down on people... I prefer to look down on people... HAHA just jk...


My friend brought us to a Korean restaurant for dinner... I do not know which restaurant it is or where it is located... as I just follow them blindly >.< therefore please just look at the photos and try to guess where it is hehe >.<

We ordered a sumptuous spread of BBQ set, kimchi hotpot and bibimbap... Shall let the photos describe the food haha...







A group photo of us with a satisfied face haha...


After dinner we decided to walk to the famous Sydney landmark, the Sydney Opera House... Its totally a bad idea... as its very cold at night, we are not properly dressed and worse of all, it is no where near the restaurant!!! Anyway here are the photos that we took on the way...

The busy road in the city even at night...


The rocks... where you can find alot of pubs and bars...


And finally.... the Sydney Opera House... looks nice... but there is no way we can take photo with it at night!!! =(


Shall end this post with a failed attempt to take photo with the opera house >.<


Next up: Blue mountain.... the most exciting day of the whole trip!!!
